Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: The Dream Bowl is indeed a Dream on this new copy

Rather than '69, it appears we have a lot of '76 ahead of us...

Charlie Miller says:
"Here is a list of the shows from 1976 that will be circulated by me over the next few months (Keep in mind that some shows have multiple aud + sbd sources that will be released:

6/14/76
6/19/76
6/21/76
6/22/76
6/24/76
6/26/76
6/27/76
6/28/76
6/29/76
7/12/76
7/13/76
7/14/76
7/16/76
7/17/76
7/18/76
8/4/76
9/30/76
10/1/76
10/3/76

There's probably some more in there that I can't remember right now.

There's also new boards of:
2/22/69
12/1/73
3/2/81
3/3/81
3/13/81
3/14/81
5/17/81
2/17/82
3/13/82

Plus David Gans has recently given me a bunch of shows which will be circulated after he airs them on the KPFA Marathon. (Please remember to donate to KPFA.)"

Try reading the post. Charlie Miller has not released those boards yet, and may not get to them for several months.

Though I'm no expert on '80s boards, the ones Charlie Miller's already done might be a good start. This should be a chronological list of Miller's Dead shows on the Archive:

Regarding his releases from the early-mid 80s, just because he did the transfers doesn't mean the audio is good. It just means that the audio is the best it can be given the original source. And from what I have found, the original sources were shit during this era. Go back and listen to the source I provided from '86 and see if you can match the sound quality of that to anything from the early-mid 80s. Go ahead. Try.

Unfortunately, I'm not interested in looking for the best-sounding boards of the early '80s... But good luck in your search! Maybe a search through old forum posts will turn up more recommendations.

As I understand it, the loss of quality in that period is partly because of the switch to digital recording, and partly because after Betty left, Healy just taped from PA mixes rather than making a separate tape mix. There were also said to be a lot of SBD tapes lost or stolen in those years, and not all of them have resurfaced.
